Can't wait for the storyline. Would be curious to see what it is about.

He did great things for Star Trek, a film that I absolutely loved, yet I hate the TV series. So I think this is a great choice.

Oh great, can't wait to see some more lens flare.

I still think Disney could have used a bit more imagination in choosing someone outside the box.

I kind of agree. He seems like a very safe choice, but you know, maybe that's okay for the sequel trilogy. Maybe for the standalone movies they'll branch out and try new things (that's why I was bummed the Zack Snyder thing was false), but for the trilogy they want to make sure it's safe and doesn't fall flat.
